What are YOU gonna drink tonight?

September 29th, 2006, 7:26 pm

Like they say -- To be drunk all Saturday you gotta start in the morning.I'm starting Friday with a spicy Johnnie Gold and then washing off with some cheap Canadian whiskey thats been by my bedstand for far too long (Royal Crown or somen like that).

There's a local microbrewer that uses oak bourbon barrels for a cask-conditioned stout. The result is wickedly delicious -- its a meal, a beer, and a shot chaser all in one glass.

And as much as you plead, they won't give you a pitcher; it's ~13% alcohol, unfiltered and packs a punchED: their IPA is more of a king hit than a punch, you'll have trouble finding north

For whisky (scotch), I like The Macallan.  Note the spelling - two a's - not Macallen.  

Real Scotch is made by Real Scotsman!

Single malt and you can try many kinds - from light pine kind of taste to oak, and charcoal....have fun!  This is a good place to start.

No blendeds, not Canadian, and definitely not American.   If you want bourbon, that is a different story and you can go to Kentucky....

The Macallan

Hopefully Paul and rmax will weigh in though - they have access to a broader array of brands.

I feel a little warmer already.  :D

Also noted that you ask about cocktails.

Do not drink cocktails made of whisky - just drink it straight, like a man.  

If you want you could have some ice on the side, but better - trying adding a little water.  That seems to be more than acceptable, if not completely expected.

"...with Aberlour A'bunadh it starts to look hazy. ... and you'll taste flavors of orange and cinnamon spice at first, and then afterward, and with the addition of more water, you'll taste chocolate. (Remember: flavors vary from brand to brand)."

Another one to try!

Indeed, even on the coldest winter nights, tea flows much faster than Scotch around here!

So sorry - the time zones trip me up sometimes - 

10 am here and here comes the storm!  High wind and heavy rain so far. Love it!

The rest of the high tea service for you....  :D

The only ones I'm aware of are the whisky sour, Irish coffee, and the whisky & coca cola but then I prefer craft beer to cocktails.

I'd think about what flavors might be complemented by the smoke-and-oak of whisky: maybe some of the herbal liqueurs?

(This thread has me wondering how whisky + black tea might taste.)
